Intrigue Across America Tour 2024 - Columbus

A Rainbow of Blooms to Wrap-Up Tour

Our journey culminated at the enchanting White Willow Meadows, nestled in a serene oasis just outside of Columbus, Ohio. This hidden gem boasted not just one, but three distinct buildings on its picturesque property, offering everything needed to turn dreams into reality. As we arrived, we were immediately struck by the natural beauty that enveloped us—a verdant landscape framed by towering trees, creating an intimate haven of privacy for our event. The lush meadow, embraced by majestic oak trees and the sweet fragrance of honeysuckle, set the stage for a truly tranquil and unforgettable experience. It was the perfect finale to our Intrigue Across America Tour, a fitting end to a journey filled with discovery, inspiration, and boundless creativity.

Day 1 - Wedding Sales Strategy & Event Design

The kick-off of the Wedding Sales Strategy & Event Design class proved to be a true eye-opener. Right from the get-go, the room was electric with anticipation, each attendee brimming with excitement and a hunger for knowledge. Sarah ignited the space with her contagious zeal and unbridled passion, setting the tone for what would be a remarkable day of discovery and personal growth.

Throughout the session, we delved deep into the intricacies of curating unforgettable moments for couples, from inception to the grand finale. As the day unfolded, we found ourselves immersed in invaluable insights and equipped with practical tools, poised to revolutionize our approach to attracting discerning clients and amplifying sales potential. This class isn't just any ordinary workshop; it's a game-changer for the wedding industry, offering fresh perspectives and propelling excellence to new heights.

*FUN FACT: Sarah told a story about stepping into luxury store and her interaction with the manager of the store and how she remembered how he made her feel and that she wanted to go bck and purchase something from him because of how he made her feel. People don’t buy things, they buy experiences. How they experience your business matters!

Day 2 - Luxury Floral Installation Masterclass

Day 2 of the Intrigue Across America Tour 2024 in Columbus was an absolute whirlwind of color and creativity – the perfect finale to our incredible journey. As we embraced the theme of rainbows, our students poured their hearts and souls into crafting unforgettable installations that left us all in awe. The rainbow ombre tablescape centerpiece was a true masterpiece, a harmonious blend of hues that danced across the room.

But the magic didn't stop there. Our staircase design was a sight to behold, overflowing with blooms in every shade imaginable. And then, as if by magic, our ceremony aisle and backdrop took our breath away. Lush bouquets lined the colorful path, leading to a ceremony altar framed by stunning floral 'snakes' hanging from the rafters. It was a sensory feast, a symphony of colors that left an indelible mark on our hearts. As we bid farewell to the tour, we're filled with gratitude for the incredible talent and dedication of our students, and for the vibrant tapestry of memories they've woven. What a way to end an amazing journey!

*FUN FACT: We almost had to cancel due to the crazy weather and tornado warnings. We ended up designing all installations indoors, but the result was stunning, just the same.

After day 2 wrapped, the Styled Shoots Across America photographers came in to photograph all of the beautiful florals and decor, along with the help of stunning models. Attendees of the workshops get full access to all professional photos once galleries are completed, which means hands were filled with flowers, minds with inspiration, and portfolios with photos!
